Beyond the Games: Beltran twins

Beyond the Games: Beltran twins (WRGB)

NISKAYUNA, NY (WRGB)--The Schalmont High School cross country team has opponents and fans seeing double this year.

The Sabres boast two of the top distance runners in section two who routinely finish first and second, and, the speedy duo also happens to be identical twins.

Francisco and Antonio Beltran are both juniors at Schalmont and have been running together since 7th grade.

Antonio took a brief reprise to focus on football and wrestling, but the twins reunited on the varsity cross country and track last year.

Since then the pair has taken section two by storm and their success hasn't gone unnoticed by DI college recruiters.
